I was visiting my daughter and were searching for a good place to have brunch. One of her roommates suggested Blue Star; we looked it up on internet and hit the road. The first pleasant surprise was that there was no waiting line, as much places have, specially if you go downtown. Don't get mislead, the place was full, but... More

Service was quick and food delivered very promptly. Couldn't ask for anything more in that department. My salad was ok - nothing spectacular. My son had the fish and chips appetizer and loved the fries but the protein was lacking flavor. He only ate a few bites but decided not to send back since we were headed to appt.

Go early because everyone wants to get in this place on Sunday morning! Brunch was absolutely wonderful and the mimosas refreshing.

Visited at lunch and was surprised to find many good salads and tuna sandwich with lots of veggies. Despite amazing looking deserts we opted out. Restaurant was clean and nicely furnished and server was helpful.

Burnet road location is becoming/has become a trendy spot in Austin. We were looking for something different so thought we'd give Blue Star a try. I’d define it as a typical kind of trendy place for the neighborhood. Just for the record, it's not a cafeteria, but we knew that going in. The wait staff was attentive, but obviously trying...

We went for the first time with a groupon and what a surprise. Food is very much but at the same time some gourmet cooking. Their artichoke appetizer was so tasty. My husband's meatloaf was excellent and portions were huge. My seared chicken breast was very upscale you would find in more expensive restaurants. Happy hour prices are good also... More

My first visit to Blus Star had hits and misses. The drink service was slow and disjunct. We were asked if we wanted straws and lemon with our water. These items did not show up until much later in the meal when we reminded the waiter. When we inquired about the wine list (which is pretty small), our waiter had... More

Had lunch here earlier this week with three others, including my wife. Coconut chicken strip appetizer and artichoke appetizer excellent, and absolutely merits ordering. Shrimp cocktail look good, but not crazy about the English peas. I had meat lasagna and another in my party ordered regular lasagna, both good Italian restaurant worthy. My wife had a veggie salad, the waiter... More

I try to have a meal at his restaurant every time I visit Austin. The food is excellent (I had the Chicken Salad sandwich on wheat bread today....delicious!) and the service is professional. There is a great selection of desserts as well and there is a nice selection of wine/beer. It opens at 11AM on Monday - Friday but at... More
